FastContinuum 2023
A workshop of the 14th ACM/SPEC International Conference on Performance
Engineering 2023 (
April 15 or 16, 2023, Coimbra Portugal

Call for Papers
Nowadays, cloud computing is widely used by industry with an estimate of the
worldwide cloud market of about 940 USD billion with a compound annual growth
rate of about 16%. Cloud computing provides, among others, the capacity to
run the backend of web applications, or train artificial intelligence
applications, or run big data analytics. However, the accelerated migration
towards mobile computing and the Internet of Things, where a huge amount of data is
generated by widespread end-devices, is determining the rise of the computing
continuum paradigm, where resources are distributed among devices with highly
heterogeneous capacities. This promises reduced latency and higher throughput
thanks to local processing. However, in reality, there are still many open
challenges concerning the fast development, testing, and operation of computing
continuum software, especially when we must provide specific performance
guarantees in the end-to-end application execution. Indeed, computing continua
are inherently fragmented, IoT/edge devices are highly heterogeneous providing
different computing capabilities but also introducing proprietary development,
deployment, and operation frameworks. In this context, dominating the complexity
of multiple coexisting frameworks, as well as managing component placement and
resource allocation, become crucial to orchestrate at best the continuum of

The goal of the FastContinuum workshop is to foster discussion and collaboration
among researchers from cloud/edge/fog/computing continuum and performance
analysis communities, to share the relevant topics and results of the current
approaches. The topics of interest include but are not limited to:

- Modeling and evaluation of computing continuum applications performance
- Cloud, edge, grid, and fog as continuum components
- Computing continuum benchmarking
- Autonomous, resilient and adaptive systems, and applications
- Application to resource mapping optimization, tasks scheduling
- Microservices in the computing continuum, Function as a Service systems
- Data-intensive and stream processing systems and applications
- Machine learning and artificial intelligence applications
- Cyber-physical systems, IoT, industrial internet
- Infrastructure as a Service and Infrastructure as Code, automation in the
computing continuum
- Modeling and verification of application deployment plans
- DevSecOps for computing continuum applications
- Computing continuum monitoring
- Sandbox environments for simulation/emulation of continuum resources

Submission guidelines
Authors are invited to submit original, unpublished papers that are not being
considered in another forum. We solicit full papers (max. 8 pages) as well as
short and demo papers (max. 5 pages). Short papers can include reports about
research activities not mature enough for a full paper as well as new ideas and
vision papers. All submissions must conform to the standard ACM format for
conference proceedings. More specifically, the double-column formats have to be
used for all paper submissions. Each paper submission will be reviewed by at
least three members of the program committee. Papers can be submitted via
EasyChair:, FastContinuum 2023
workshop track.
Papers will be published by ACM in the ICPE2023 Companion Proceedings volume.

At least one author of each accepted paper is required to attend the workshop
and present the paper. Presented papers will be published as part of the
ACM ICPE 2023 companion post-proceedings.
